MRSA and VRE Bloodstream Infections

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) are relatively less common organisms in paediatric populations compared to adult populations. This provides SickKids with an opportunity to carefully analyze each case to determine whether an improvement in practice is required.
